Testimonials from past recipients of the AADE Foundation Annual Meeting Scholarships:

"Wow! This is totally unexpected and wonderful. Please extend my appreciation to the members of the AADE Education and Research Foundation. I have spent most of my working career in the field of diabetes education and it has provided both many challenges as well as personal fulfillment. I haven’t had the opportunity to attend very many of the AADE annual meetings. However, I found each one that I did attend to be stimulating and motivating, and I left each one with a renewed passion to improve my skills as a diabetes educator. Thanks again."

-Diane Ehlinger, RN BS CDE

"I couldn't believe it when I opened the email! I have never been to the Annual Meeting and you have made it possible! I am really excited. Thanks again!!"
